Stratton rebuilt their park for this season. The new park boasts multiple lines including one with six tables and an oversized flat down box. They also installed a 40 foot "busbox" — an actual school bus with its roof resurfaced with HDPE (box plastic), making it super jibbable.Book Your Trip NowPHOTO: Stratton Mountain Resort


Stratton is known for its polish and shine, its upscale lodging and village, and its high levels of service. Yet it arguably did more to nurture snowboarding back in the sport's wild child days than any other resort in the country.

Jay Peak, Vermont, already closed for the season. Then a massive late-season winter storm rolled in—dropping 19 to 24 inches on the ski area. Naturally, they decided to re-open for one more weekend. The ski area is open Thursday through Sunday with more than 18 trails accessed by the Jet Triple and Metro Quad. Lift tickets are $39 ($29 for juniors) and—get this—they're throwing in a free lunch in the Tower Bar with a purchase of a lift ticket.
